BSDstate-6.0 has been released

Yuri-10
I am happy to announce that BSDstats-6.0 has just been released. (port
sysutils/bsdstats)
I took over its maintainership, cleaned it up, very close to a complete
rewrite.

For those who doesn't know what it is: It is the system that is
anonymously reporting the general statistics about your system: CPU,
hardware, OS version, installed packages. Reporting is done monthly, or
on demand. Data is added to the central database, and can be viewed at
http://www.bsdstats.org. It is designed for all BSDs, not just FreeBSD.
Some other BSDs require it to run with bash shell.

Major changes:
1. It now has "TOR" port option, that allows to submit through the tor
anonymity network for even better anonymity.
2. Submission through HTTP proxy is fixed. It now works through proxies
with and without authentication.
3. It works many times faster now. Usually finishes in under 10 seconds.
4. Many smaller bugs are fixed.

Please install BSDstats and use it. It helps port maintainers and driver
developers to better focus their efforts. It is not collecting any
personally identifiable data. All data is handled with the greatest
respect of your privacy in mind. Keeping it installed is all you need to do.

Regards,
Yuri
